The National Grange is a nonprofit organization that engages in some commercial activities to support the civic, community and member service activities conducted by its nearly 2500 local, county and state Grange chapters across the nation. For this reason, our founders saw the need to protect our name and overall brand. National Grange leaders have received trademark protection for the GRANGE trademarks, which the National Grange has used since at least as early as 1876.
Today, we stand by our members to facilitate their educational, social, cultural and civic missions in their hometowns by actively defending our GRANGE trademarks, as we are required to do under U.S. law. These trademarks have grown to include our National Grange logo, as well as the Junior Grange and Grange Youth logos, NATIONAL GRANGE, NATIONAL GRANGE OF THE ORDER OF PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY and THE GRANGE FOUNDATION.
Businesses that wish to use the Grange name have successfully used our licensing model. From daycare centers, to housing developments, to restaurants, to prepared food vendors, we have many licensees throughout the United States. Licensees enjoy the benefits of our established national reputation while providing excellent products and services to their communities.
